This beauty of a compass combines state-of-the-art technology, masterful engineering, and style for an end result that gives you much more than just which direction is north. The Iris 50 compass is clear evidence that a sturdy marine compass no longer needs to look boring or ugly. With it, you’ll have excellent protection against hard knocks. The smooth finish feels soft in your hand, and it will not slip, even if it is wet. And it’s quite user friendly – providing outstanding legibility of the card, with one-degree graduations.

The Iris 50 compass is available in blue, yellow, and olive-green. You’ll have the option to add a teak or PVC holder for your compass.

The Iris 50 provides you with the optimum conditions to take bearings, thanks to the superb card stability and the wide 20° field of view, which will accommodate the toughest sea conditions. Relax, knowing that you have the most accurate bearing.

The Iris 50 compass will take the toughest seas that come your way. Bang it, drop it, soak it – don’t worry, the Iris 50 can handle it. The soft bottom cell is engineered using ultra-sonic welding; it acts like an expansion diaphragm, preventing the formation of bubbles and leaks.

With built-in photoluminescent lighting, the Iris 50 is completely maintenance-free, impervious to corrosion, and operates without batteries or radio-active tritium.

Take your course reading from above the compass. You can read the Iris 50 compass like any compass – there’s no need to look through the prism.

Clearance ±12° – Red lubber lines.
